Wedding Wednesday - Meyer & Zimmeth

Charles Louis Zimmeth and Louetta Philomena Meyer were married July 24, 1922 in Detroit, Michigan.  He was the son of August and Augusta (Kleasott*) Zimmeth and she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Amelia (Knost**) Meyer. This is the only picture I have of my grandparents together. She isn't looking at the camera. The photo was taken behind Uncle John Ochenfeld's wicker furniture factory. Those are baby buggies (without wheels) behind Louetta. They would need one in about 5 months. Click on the image to enlarge and use your browser's back button to return here.

** Pronounced KAnost. An instance when the K is not silent.

  1. You mean our grandparents had s-e-x before they were married??? I think Aunt Margie looked like her mom.

  2. First baby can come anytime, the next one takes 9 months.

  3. Unmitigated: What's worse than thinking about your parents having sex? Thinking about your grandparents having sex!

    Carol: Couldn't have said it better!
